Bright Lights


Bright Lights is a nonprofit organization that takes learning beyond the classroom by providing youth with unique, motivating, hands-on learning opportunities.

Bright Lights values safety as much as summer learning. We are choosing to continue to do our part to slow and prevent the spread of the coronavirus and therefore we will not be having live, in-person camps this summer. Instead, we are going to be flipping things around and bringing select Bright Lights camps straight to students this summer, virtually. And camps on this “flipside” are FREE!

Our Impact in 2019

  • Students Registered


  • Classes/Camps Offered


  • Scholarships Awarded


  • Teachers


We aren’t able to offer the full 105 camps that had been planned, but we are so fortunate to have amazing teachers joining our virtual community and still providing fun and engaging activities. And the best part? The camps are free and we’re reaching people beyond Lincoln – how cool is that?  

Celebrating and supporting local non-profits is an amazing way to connect and unite our community, especially during this time of COVID-19. So many people are being impacted, and non-profits specifically are taking a huge hit both financially and in their ability to serve the populations they work with.  

Even though summer activities are changing by the day, one thing is for sure – ice cream makes everything better! Please enjoy this tasty experiment and find out if you really know good ice cream when you taste it!
